Default ATC requests.

There is a lot of sections of the FAR's that start with one or both of the following lines.

(a) Unless otherwise authorized by the Administrator, no person may operate an aircraft...........

(b) Unless otherwise authorized or required by ATC, no person may operate an aircraft........

With that in mind, If ATC asked you to do something, it is sometimes easier to do as asked as that is an authorization. Just remember the date, time and location, because all ATC communications are recorded and saved for sometime, so you can use it as your defense. They understand that multiple aircraft is close proximity, mess up their screens, and they need to reduce returns and false traffic conflicts which causes alarms and distractions, so that is why they ask your wingman to turn off their transponder to remove these distractions. It is all in the interest of safety.

They actually cancelled the air show today,and most vendors were packed up by early afternoon, including Vanís. The really nasty weather spared the airport. The frontal system sure closed off the route home so we are leaving early tomorrow morning.
I really enjoyed meeting so many of you that I have spoken with or traded emails over the years!

Default Great Show

Bracketed by bad weather, the core of the show was great! From Thursday through Saturday, the weather was excellent and the performers were awesome.

The cancellation of the Thunderbirds was regrettable but SNF filled the gap admirably. Personally, I prefer SNF without the jet team shows. I stay in the campground and dislike having to evacuate half of the campground just so the T-Birds or Blues can fly. But, that's purely personal opinion.

I restocked my supplies, checked out all the new stuff and said hello to many friends. It was a good year at SNF.
